Limb, Mary Emily

Hastings Cemetery

Name: Mary Emily Limb

Died on: Thursday, 24th September 1942

Wounded at: 61 Warrior Square, St Leonards

Additional Information: Mary Limb, aged 68, was wounded when seven fighter bombers swept into St Leonards strafing with machine gun fire and dropping HE bombs on Warrior Square, West Hill, St Leonards, Quarry Hill and De Cham Road. She died later that day at the Buchanan Hospital. 23 people were killed in the attack, with 43 other wounded, 21 seriously.

Mary, daughter of Thomas William and Elizabeth Ann Bigglestone, was married to Frank Limb and lived at 61 Warrior Square.

I was unable to locate Mary’s grave marker in the main area of WW2 war graves, so she is likely buried else where on site. I will look to find it when I revisit Hastings Cemetery.
